Well, I guess if that's what you mean by "affecting" the RAW file, then it is true that D-lighting "affects" the picture. The function does two thing with RAW - underexposes the shot, and then applies curves. Only the former is done with RAW.
AFAIK, you can't turn Pentax's D-Lighting HD equivalent off in RAW convertors.

But yes, you're right about Nikon's version:
NX101 -- Capture NX - D-Lighting
Sounds like they're just storing extra bits (the least significant ones that may be a bit noisier) that weren't stored in RAW and later on, they can apply these to the RAW image.
